St. John’s is a wonderful place. My husband gets a full day of activity, both mental and physical, has fun, socializes, and enjoys helping others when he can. I, in turn, can get a few things done and relax a little. It’s so good for both of us. Being his caregiver 24/7 is truly exhausting. I am delighted St. John’s was able to reopen. During the months Jeff spent at home, he was less active and developed some mobility issues. I think that by returning to St. John’s and getting some therapy, he will get back to where he was.
I am writing to let you know as I remember Gene I also remember what a wonderful, caring, loving Adult Day program you have at St. John's Community Care. I call it the Angel Sanctuary. Where I met many angels serving there. With my children by my side we set out to look for the perfect place, so it turned out that St. John's was the 1st and last! My niece and I were so touched that day as you toured us through your center. We could see how warm and caring each one of the staff were and how they were caring for each one of the participants that day. I journaled during this journey and I look back are smile as I re-read all the "fun things" Gene and got to do and participate in. I am grateful he was cared for patiently, lovingly and in a fun and humorously way. My family will never forget you who serve there. Thank you for your friendship. Love Blanche

We believe that when an organization is faith-based and mission-oriented, you do things a little differently. Our everyday caregiving and organizational decisions are based on what is best for our clients and families, not our bottom line. Granted, we are good stewards of our resources but we stretch as far as we can to help the people in our communities. St. John’s Community Care complies with applicable federal civil rights laws and does not discriminate, exclude people or treat them differently, on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability or sex.
